Vintage Swedish Flat Weave Rug

Price: $9,000

A vintage flat-weave wool antique rug with a geometric design with horizontal stripes in beige, brown, yellow, purple and blue with playful triangular emerald green accents. A truly delightful piece.

Although the designs of antique and vintage Scandinavian rugs were originally inspired by imported textiles, they gradually developed into an innately northern expression. Simple geometric patterns and vignettes from everyday life such as bouquets of flowers, a child’s sampler or a pet dog were incorporated into flat woven tapestries or Swedish pile vintage rugs and carpets, adding charm and immediacy to this folk art. A fresh and appealing aesthetic was sustained during the first half of the twentieth century by the weavings of the celebrated Swedish carpet designer Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and her circle. The simplicity and purity of design in vintage Scandinavian rugs for sale gives them an immediate relevance and contemporary desirability.
